This is the FIRST comics project of Czech origin on Kickstarter so we hope that you like it ;)
We have good news for all the people who comes to this project after it gets funded here on Kickstarter and are interested in our book. You can buy the book and other stuff on our website and send the money via PayPal.
In the story we will follow a journey of a man, whose daughter is trapped in a coma and he has to travel into the world of dreams to get a chance to fight for her life.
In the world of dreams they call him "The Seeker". He encounters a wide variety of individuals and intelligent entities. While some of them try to help him on his way, others want to destroy him.
So not only does he have to fight with his direct enemies, but also with the enemies like fear, hidden deep inside himself. At the same time, his path shows him his own strengths and power, which has always been there; he just didn’t realize how to use it.
It is a story of hope, determination and an overcoming of personal limits.
And the worst part is that he does not have much time...
We have made several successful comic stories as a team. Some of them were longer series for magazines, some of them were commercial works but the best ones were our own personal work.
Viktor Šauer - Viktor has been into creative writing since age of fifteen. Even though he has an Engineers degree and has traveled some nice parts of the world, he decided to follows his dreams and continue in what he believes and is passionate about.
Michael Petrus - Michael is a freelance illustrator and comic artist who has been drawing comics since the age of five, when he thought he invented the action comics… what a pity! He was also awarded at the international festival Comic Show Room in 2009 and has hundreds of comic pages to his account.
Miloš "Mankin" Mičátek - Mankin the Magnificent is an incredibly willing person and our great letterer who takes care of our speech bubbles and text panels.
Ricky Barrington - Ricky is our native speaker who helps us with language stylistics.
Tomas Holub - Tomas is our project manager who helps us with all the various stuff around KS coordination and US shipping. Experimental entrepreneur. Making his living by doing fun projects.

Something from the BONUS Gallery (process of a page creation):
Kickstarter is the opportunity we need, and with your help we can make it happen. This is where you come in.
NOTE: $9,000 is just the amount we need to print this graphic novel and ship it to you... we won’t keep a single penny for our work. However, if we don't reach the goal, nothing gets printed and nobody will enjoy our story...
So, we really need everyone’s help to make it all happen. Let as many people as possible know about it. Please, Please, Please PROMOTE OUR CAMPAIGN on your Facebook, Twitter, Google+, your blogs and websites, tell all the people you know that may be interested in our book and helping creators like us. Let them know so we can make it a reality for you all and this thing can be released and show up on your doorstep this summer.
If the project reaches the goal, and hopefully succeeds it, it will prove that we have some sort of fan base in which to grow with.
Take a look to the right and you will see several of pledge options for you to choose from! Anything that you can pledge will help us to make this project a reality. We really can't do this without you guys!

Risks and challenges
As the comic is nearly finished, we don't see too many problems with completing the pledges. The only potential problem that we can see is with the printers. Sometimes printers can have longer waiting times for jobs than expected. However, we make an effort to deal with things in advance and everything should be fine for the expected delivery date in the August.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
